The Feb. 14 declaration "activates the recovery and rehabilitation aspects of the Williamson County Emergency Management Plan." The state of disaster will end in seven days unless the Commissioners Court extends it.
The county’s Emergency Operations Center will remain active until the winter weather is no longer a threat, according to the county. Residents are urged to stay home. Winter weather updates will be posted on the county website.
“We want to impress on the people of Williamson County the importance of staying home and not getting on the roads as much as possible. By staying home, you can do your part to keep other people safe, including our first responders,” Gravell said in a release.
